Figures, Eliot Spitzer misses ethics report filing deadline

Because face it, ethics isn’t Eliot Spitzer’s strong suit.

New York City comptroller candidate Eliot Spitzer hasn’t filed an ethics report on time with the city Conflicts of Interest Board.

The Wall Street Journal (http://on.wsj.com/15hivRy ) reports that Spitzer is one of several candidates who haven’t filed a financial disclosure report by last Thursday’s deadline.

The fine for missing the deadline is between $250 and $10,000. But the board automatically extends a one-week grace period before imposing any fines.

Spitzer’s lawyer said the candidate is “very busy” securing nominating petitions and he’ll catch up on his paperwork next week. Honest. And Eliot Spitzer’s word is gold, right?
